It'S Me Part 9

Why not?.What do mean asked Jesse.You are the most safety minded person i
know.You can hold meetings here and inspect their cars here..I bet Jim(sheriff)
would help out..He did some street racing in his day..Jesse said,i'll talk to him..
That night Jesse told Cindy of the plans..She told Jesse,i wanna help..With what
happened to Billy,we need to make sure that doesn't happen to anyone else..
I'm gonna call Jim to see if we can meet and talk about this,Jesse said..The call was placed and Jim agreed to meet..Couple days later Jim met up with Jesse at the junkyard..Jesse told Jim what he wanted to do..We can do it here acouple times a month on Sundays..Cindy and Bob(boss)are willing to help..We can start a car club..Every car must pass our inspection and everyone must obey
the rules..Jim then asked the big question,,where are they going to race?.Can't
let them race illegally,right Jesse?.That's true,Jesse answered..We gotta find
someplace for races..Jim said,for now lets get the word out about this..Cindy said,that's the first step..

I especially love this story because I spent my entire adult life creating and operating high adventure and other fun youth programs for kids just like these teens. I operated gender-neutral motocross race teams, go kart stunt teams, hi adventure camping. theatrical performance programs even children's TV shows providing these programs free of charge to kids who just couldn't get into the jock scene. Many of my kids were the Goths and kids with the pink or green hair.

Great story Cindy. Hope it spreads some activity ideas.

Things like this is needed..Where a kid can be whoever he or she is..

When I decided on a career in youth work I had two objectives. 1. create programs that I could have a lot of fun doing myself, and 2. Create programs for those kids who don't fit in with the "cool" kids. It paid off big time for me and the several hundred kids I reached most successfully.
